[applause] show me one example in the last 10 year where is the democrats gave up a winnable seat. no, that hasn't happened. passion is great but in politics scoring is all that counts. we can't anticipate every candidate's mistake but we can stop encouraging our candidates to show off for the base by taking positions that are not our positions. it is no the position of the national rifle committee that a woman should be forced to carry the baby of her rapist. i think our position is -- no, absolutely exception for rape and incest. now let's talk about the other 99% of abortion.

's about the 1968 election. the democratic electorate was split. they were not unified behind their candidate. on the right, southern white democrats who were against civil rights, they were being peeled off to vote for george wallace, the symbol of proud segregation. also, different problem for the democrats. people hated the vietnam war. and the president at the time was a democrat, lyndon b. johnson. so if you were against the war, as most americans at that point were -- this is the gallop polling on the war -- the number of people who thought it was a mistake -- if you were against the war as increasingly everybody was, you were so the psyched to vote for lbj's successor. so the democrats were losing their appeal in the south because of racism, and they were losing the anti-war vote. the republican candidate tried to take advantage of that split, and was this handsome devil. nixon in 1968 was running against a democratic party that he knew was split. he was, in response, pledging to get rid of the draft. and he claimed to have a plan to end the war. he argued that if you w

-- it is the same amount of time approximately that it took to elect the previous pope. it's not extraordinarily fast. it only surprise many of us because there was no favorite. therefore, there was a great deal of speculation about the cardinals being divided and therefore taking a long time, having to choose a compromise candidate. now it would appear that because of the time span, they did not choose a compromise candidate. my analysis would be that they decided fairly early on somebody who had a simple majority. in the papal election, benedict xvi revised that to make sure the new pope had very widespread support throughout the world. he reintroduced the old condition that the pope has to achieve at least a 2/3 majority. in this case, 78 votes is a minimum out of 112. that is 2/3, plus one. because 112 is not divisible by 3. it would be extraordinary if the pope had only achieved it by 78 votes. he probably had even more. that indicates to me that, as i said, if it is not a compromise candidate, it is somebody who the cardinals, a considerable number of the cardinals decided very, very early

went down in the last the election, too. >> went down from the standpoint that they lost to democrats unlike some of these mr. murdoch for instance. we are supposed to wonder chris richard murdoch, indiana. >> why we don't have the women's vote when we have a candidate suggesting that a child born as a result of rape is a gift from god. i'm not wondering why we don't have more women voting for republicans. >> chris: let me ask you about that. karl rove called the conservative victory project to try to get into the the primaries to make sure there are more electable republicans. congressman you are about to start your own super pac to promote electable candidates in republican primaries. have any problem with that. first of all, why do you think that is wrong? >> i think the definition of electable is what we are debating here and you you look at who has been winning elections. it has been interesting exciting young inne energetic e like ted cruz and marco rubio and if you apply the establishment litmus test which tends to be biased for people already in office you will not get the new

and growing. imagine the enhanced dignity they must feel after what happened last night in rome. the election of pope francis is so new it's going to take a while to get our head around it. all the people here in our country from central america, the caribbean, they must be thrilled. the cardinal from buenos aires came as a surprise, didn't it? he wasn't a front-runner. my sense is that he will be very offbeat from what we're used to in politics in this country. usually you hear someone say i'm a liberal on social issues but conservative. pope francis is progressive on matters like poverty and economic justice. he's like some old-style democrats who are pro life but solid on health care for the poor, protection of minimum wage. you know, like former bob casey. and more conservative when it comes to matters of sex. maybe it's the best we can do. and that's "hardball" for now. "politicsnation" with al sharp ton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for ktuning in. senator one-term mcconnell, meet the president's second term agenda. president obama was back on capitol hill today

. the election of pope francis is something so new it may take a while to get our heads around it. it won't take that long for people who come from latin american backgrounds. all the people here in our country from central america and the caribbean, they must be thrilled. >>> and the cardinal from buenos aires was a surprise last night. he wasn't even mentioned of the possible popes of the newspapers. my sense is he'll be very offbeat from what we're used to in politics in this country. usually you hear someone from the suburbs say i'm a liberal on social issues but conservative on economic issues. well pope francis is the opposite from you. he's conservative on issues like marriage and equality, but progressive on poverty and justice. some old style democrats who are pro life but solid on health care for the poor, protection of the minimum wage, sort of like bob casey. so get ready for a pope who will be perfectly on the old progressive issues dear to dorothy day and tip o'neill and more conservative when it comes to matters of sex. that's "hardball" for now, thanks for being with us, "the ed

. to my complete shock, she said yes. after the election, of course, where reagan got elected president, and we went to their church, and my two daughters and my wife were all baptized. we got back to washington. we joined a church. and it has been our life ever since. >> back to your early career, as a writer, reporter, what was your first reporting job? how long did you just report not giving a penny? >> for a long time. i mean, i was a reporter for 20 years before "the new republic" magazine then starting "the weekly standard." my first job out of college, of course, i did not have a job. i wrote a bunch of newspapers in the south. i just, i did not want to go to the north. i kind of liked the south. you know, i read "all the king's men." it was an appealing book to me. it was a great interest to me. anyway, i wrote a bunch of newspapers. one of them in charleston, south carolina, "news and courier" offered me train fare to come down and back and i leaped at it. they offered me a job at $80 a week. it was in 1965. i moved to charleston, south carolina. not a great news town as it tur

is trying to get in the primaries to make sure there are more electable republicans, people that can win the primary and go on and win the general election. congressman, you are about to start your own super pac for republican parties and elect your own candidates. can do you think that is wrong? >> the definition of electable is what we are debating. when you look at who is winning, it is young people like ted cruz or marco rubio and if you applied this sort of establish president litmus test which tends to be bias god people that are already in office you will not get that neuter. would we have gotten pat toomey? karl rove supported arlen specter as far back as 2004 against pat toomey thinking he could not win. arlen specter, later, flipped party when it was convenient and bake the 60th vote for obamacare so we need to be careful about what it means to be electable. at least we are winning elections and bringingp new people in the party. we are not in a position where the democrats can jam something through because of the tea party. >> there is no litmus test for the republican main st
